Okay, well I just recently got finished putting together my new PC. And I thought i'd create a little forum post of what I plan to do with my case. In order to get some feedback and perhaps some ideas. I also do not have a name for this project so called it Unknown X.
So, I have the:
Asus Crosshair IV Formula Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
Corsair A70 CPU Cooler
Coolermaster 850W PSU
Powercolor PCS+ 5870 1GB
G.Skill Ripjaw (2 x 2G
I dont have pictures of my case atm but i'll probably just leave that until i'm done with the mods.
Because red is my favourite colour i'm going with a red and black theme. Which is convenient being that the front 230MM fan on the front is red and my motherboard also fits into that overall theme.
So what I plan to do is respray some of the parts of the case so it isn't entirely black, instead red and black to make it stand out more. Like so:
I'm planning on putting an NZXT Sentry LX in(on the second and third drive bays) Mainly for looks
But also because i'd like to pc to remain quiet when idle.
With this image im just showing where I plan to put two cathodes in(i'm unsure if I should get red ones as they usually appear slightly pinkish) I was considering green as it contasts the red.
(Also the image is upside down) On top of my case are two 200mm fans one that is currently off due to the fact is to loud. So I was planning on getting two 200mm red led fans to replace them and perhaps another to replace the 200mm fan on the side panel.
If my case is bright enough and looks nice them I might replace the 140mm on the back aswell (probably won't need to).
As for the wiring I plan to get red sleeving for all my cables. I'd also love to change all the heads of the cables but it seems like too much hassle and I dont want to screw it up. I'm perhaps going to get two more sticks of G.skill ripjaws to have 8GB of RAM (is it worth it?)
It may seem simple to some other projects on here. But this is my first custom computer
So I'd like some opinions and perhaps ideas.
Just ordered 1 fan (only had one in stock
) Got the NZXT Sentry, some compressed air, some cable sleeving and a Lian LED Strip. Also going to get some spray paint to paint the parts of my case shown above. I'll upload some images as soon as I can.
